Biology senior Kristina Correa, an honors student in biology who is also earning a minor in computer science, has won a 2019 Rhodes Scholarship. Correa is among the 32 American women and men selected for the scholarship, according to an announcement by the Rhodes Trust.
The Rhodes Scholarships, which are the oldest and most celebrated international fellowship awards in the world, provide all expenses for two or three years of study at the University of Oxford in England. Rhodes Scholars are chosen for their outstanding scholarly achievements, character, commitment to others and to the common good, and potential for leadership in whatever careers they choose.
At Oxford, Correa intends to pursue a master’s degree in integrated immunology and a master’s degree in computer science.
